changed mine over almost 3 months ago and i love it very simple replaced the magneto and forget the points . i did leave the points intact but removed the wire to the points connect a new wire for the kill switch . I'm not all together sure what a new one cost as i got mine at a local salvage yard off a blown engine . 15.00 used so probably twice that new .good luck

Todd, I converted my Briggs over about 1 month ago and it is very simple to do I actually fixed a problem with my engine at the same time with getting the points wet from the snow. I believe I paid around $13 for mine here in SE Wisconsin. KS

Flywheel must be repolarized by factory if you use the OEM solid state coil.

Interested in converting my Briggs model 302431 to an electronic igintion system and looking for advise on same. Would like to hear from others who have done so on an older Briggs engine. Is it fairly easy to do, whats involved and needed to do the job, cost and relibility? Thanks in advance for your input.

Jeff, What does it cost to have the flywheel repolarized and how long does it take to get the flywheel back. What's the real scoop on the electronic ignition. I've been told you just bolt it to the frame and it magically knows when to fire the plug and having worked in electronics for over 35 years you know I believe that. Tim

        Over a year ago, you answered a question I had about the tool bar for my FDT. In your reply dated Dec 31, 2019  you said the spacer, part #16, goes in the bar to allow for up and down depth adjustment. does this mean the bolt has to be tightened at whatever depth desired or does the bolt slide up and down, allowing the lower hitch to free float?
         If it is tightened so the lower hitch and the bar are rigid, then is the depth to be controlled by the shoes? Or by the lift handle?
        Is there any kind of user directions for the tool bar? The Outdoor Power Manual basically shows how to assemble the bar but not how to use it
